Today, October 5th, is the most common birth date in the United States. More people celebrate their birthday on this date than any other during the year.

On any given day about 750,000 Americans celebrate their birthday, but today, more than 960,000 will celebrate their special day.

The reason October 5th is such a popular birthdate because the length of the average pregnancy is 274 days which would make the day of conception New Year’s Eve.

The ‘least’ common date for birthday’s is May 22nd although there is no explanation as to why.
